The Braton is an automatic rifle. Its high fire rate and accuracy make it a favorite among Tenno.
The Braton is a jack-of-all-trades Corpus designed assault rifle, equally balanced amongst the three physical damages. The damage, fire-rate, and accuracy are all balanced, allowing a rifle that will perform with surprising results against any faction.

When used extensively or playing solo, the ammunition of an unmodded Braton can burn down quite quickly. Consider switching to your pistol or utilizing melee combat when possible.
When fighting at long ranges, consider firing in short bursts or taking a calculated risk and charging forward. The ammo saved from sustained long range fighting far and away compensates for any sizable amount of close range damage.
Using Metal Auger and/or Shred makes the Braton useful for taking down large crowds without wasting too much ammo although the mods take up a sizable amount of mod capacity. The mod Split Chamber can have very similar effects, but it also takes up a large amount of mod capacity.
Using the Rifle Ammo Mutation mod can help regain lost ammo when needed, due to the weapon's semi-quick ammo consumption.
Originally, the weapon shared the same model as the Latron, with similar damage and fire rate. It now has the same model as the MK1-Braton, though it is not confirmed if it was intended or subject to change.
The presence of the Braton's Primed counterpart suggests that the Braton available in the market may be the Corpus' attempt to recreate the rifle, hence its design aesthetic leaning towards the Corpus rather than the Tenno.
The Braton has Corpus script, which translates into "Lucsor Forge"- possibly the name of the factory it was manufactured in.
During Hotfix 10.6.1, an unreleased Nvidia skin was leaked (refer to gallery image 7 below). This was automatically applied to all bratons, and was subsequently removed in the next hotfix with the redtext reading "just a small change, you probably won't even notice" referring to the fact that not many people knew of the mistake. It is unknown whether the skin will be officially released, or whether it was just a concept skin model.
